Terms and Conditions

Welcome to No.30 Whitby. Please take a moment to read our booking conditions and noise policy below as we want to ensure that all our guests have a wonderful and safe stay and also that our neighbours are not disturbed.

We will not refund any monies paid for a cancellation for a Force Majeure Event.

It is your responsibility to ensure that you have adequate insurance in place.

The following Terms and Conditions apply to your booking. They form the terms of a legally binding contract between us and you.

To proceed with your booking please confirm your acceptance of the terms and conditions by completing the form provided.


The contract for a short term holiday rental will be between the owners of No.30 Whitby (referred to as "us" or "we") and the person making the booking and all members of the holiday party (referred to as "you" or "your") under the following booking conditions. UK law will govern the contract. The contract of hire is not effective until we have received and processed the deposit. The contract will be subject to these booking conditions and must be complied with. The party leader must be at least 18 years of age at the time of booking and the booking form must list names and addresses and ages of your party.


Bookings are confirmed and a contract will arise on receipt of the terms and conditions acknowledgment and completed booking form with full details of all occupants and receiving the deposit of 25% of the holiday cost. Until this point the dates remain available. The balance of the rental will be due for payment 12 weeks before the start of your holiday. No.30 will construe non-payment of the balance by the due date as cancellation of the rental by the customer and reserves the right to cancel the holiday and make the dates available and the deposit will be forfeited.

The deposit required to secure a booking is 25% of the total cost of the agreed price. There will be a 7 day cooling off period after this is received.

The deposit paid is for the agreed dates, if you wish to change your booking to an alternative date before the balance has been paid it will be considered as a new booking and the deposit will be forfeited and you will be required to pay another 25% deposit for the cost of the new dates.

If the deposit and balance have been paid you are committing yourself to the agreed dates, a request to change the dates at such short notice may not be considered. In the event that we allow you to change your dates within the 12 weeks before your booking the deposit will be forfeited and you will be required to make a new booking.

Payments can be made by BACS or cheque, made payable to Mark Verity.

Cancellation by You

If you change your mind and would like to cancel your booking please contact us by email as soon as possible. Please note that any refund given to you when cancelling your reservation will not include your deposit, unless cancelled within the 7 day cooling off period.

For cancellations made after 7 days of booking and 12 weeks prior to arrival 100% of the deposit will be retained.

For cancellations made within 12 weeks of the scheduled arrival date there will be no refund.

Any bookings cancelled after the balance has been paid, We will refund the cost of the balance paid in the event of the property being rebooked for the same price. If We book the property at a lesser price, We will retain the difference.

All cancellations will be subject to a £60 administration fee.

We would strongly advise that guests take out a travel insurance policy. Should you choose not to, then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.

National Lockdown – In the event of a national lockdown that coincides with your holiday, where you are unable to travel, and we are prevented from opening, you will receive a full refund.

Regional/Local Lockdown – In the event that the address given on the booking is put into local/regional lockdown, rendering you unable to travel and the period of restrictions covers the period of your booking you will receive a full refund. Please note that this applies only to the address given on the booking of the lead Booker and does not apply if another party member at a different address is unable to travel due to local/regional lockdown.

Your inability (or the inability of any, some or all of your intended occupants) or disinclination to travel to and stay at your hired cottage for any reason. This includes – but is not limited to – illness (including Covid), a requirement or recommendation to self-isolate or quarantine, a call to jury duty, incarceration, change in personal or work circumstances, family emergencies, travel delays, vehicle breakdown, and delays with public transport. These remain at your risk and do not give rise to a right to cancel or to receive a refund unless we re-let the property, other than according to the sliding scale below. You are strongly recommended to take out UK travel insurance to cover these eventualities. If you choose not to take out UK travel insurance then you accept responsibility for any loss that you may incur due to your cancellation.

Travel Insurance - It is the responsibility of the lead guest to acquire suitable travel insurance to cover their holiday, including cancellation and curtailment protection insurance. We strongly recommend that you take out suitable insurance which will cover you for possible cancellation of your UK holiday.
